Tom Jones Announces UK Tour

3rd August 2021 | Category: Concerts

Sir Tom Jones has announced a new set of UK tour dates for this year in support of his recent album Surrounded By Time.

The album, which came out back in April, featured covers of songs by the likes of Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, and Bobby Cole.

Jones is now set to tour in the UK in December on the Surrounded By Time tour, which kicks off in Glasgow at The SSE Hydro on December 5.

The tour will then visit Manchester and Birmingham before concluding in London on December 9 with a gig at The O2. That date is part of the London arena’s ‘Welcome Back Show’ series.

Jones tweeted: “Very excited to announce my Surrounded By Time Tour!

I will be performing arenas in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham & London this December.”

Marc Saunders, Programming Manager at The O2, said in a statement:

“We’re delighted to have Tom Jones, one of the UK’s most seminal artists, join the roster of our ‘Welcome Back Show’ series, and we can’t wait for what promises to be a special evening.” 

The iconic Welsh singer has vowed to never retire from music.

In a recent interview, he said that although he is now 81, he intends to keep playing concerts until his body doesn’t allow him to do so anymore.

“I’ve got good bones and I am pretty fit, and as long as I’ve got two bloody legs, I’ll keep performing.

“I can’t wait for live shows because I love singing to a lot of people. Without them, what’s the point?”

Jones added that the days of women throwing their underwear at him when he’s up on stage are long gone.

“The tight pants, open neck shirt, people throwing things at me – that went with time.

“I concentrate more on the way I sing as opposed to the way I move. You can’t be up there saying, ‘I am Mr. Macho,’ because I’m not. I’m not jumping all over the place, but I must admit that I don’t feel 80.”
